These teams have been mandated to verify as to how many illegal immigrants have obtained ration cards, voter cards, Aadhaar cards or even State Subject certificates by fudging records.

Following this expose the district administration has now constituted different teams comprising of officials from Revenue, Election, Police and Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Departments to conduct special census of localities where Rohingyas and Bangladeshis have been putting up illegally.

According to state government records these Rohingyas and Bangladeshis are settled across 35 localities across Jammu City and their total strength is estimated to be over 13,000.

According to official sources a family of six members was found to be in possession of all these documents.

  1. Rohingyas are terminal cancer on Bharat and must be eradicated or send to Bangladesh, these vermin will destroy Bharat, they are also in Hyderabad , West Bengal and other Indian cities, eradication of these vermin is a necessity and should be done onawar footing

  2. I am still mystified why Mr. 56 has not moved in the matter of trifurcating J&K. Jammu wants out, so too Ladakh. Wouldn’t it make matters easier in terms of integration (with India), security and (to use Mr. 56’s mantra) vikaas?
